A Little Good News

I heard the news today
They let some criminal out of jail.
I heard the news today
They killed a carpenter with some nails.
I heard they had to bury him
In an unused borrowed grave.
I sure could use
A little good news
Today.

I heard the news today
From women weeping at his tomb.
I heard the news today
His friends were hiding in some room.
I heard how they deserted him
How they all just ran away.
I sure could use
A little good news
Today.

I heard the news today
An earthquake rumbled through the land
I heard the news today
A dead man walks the streets again.
I heard they only found a shroud
Where his body used to lay.
I sure could use
A little good news
Today.

I really could use
Some really good news
Today.

(Bad news or good news? Sometimes it’s all a matter of perspective, isn’t it? Happy Easter, everyone!)
